The CBEST consists of three sections: Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. To meet the testing requirement, you do not have to pass all three sections at a single administration. Refer to "CBEST Passing Requirements" for more information about passing requirements.
When you register for the paper-based CBEST, you will automatically be registered for all three sections to be completed within four hours of testing time. However, you may take one, two, or all three sections at a given paper-based test administration.
When you register for the computer-based CBEST, you may register to take one, two, or all three sections administered in a four-hour test session that includes 15 minutes to complete a nondisclosure agreement and tutorial. The test fee is the same regardless of your selection. Once you have registered, you may not change the sections for which you registered unless you withdraw and register again.
If you need to take or retake one or more sections of the CBEST, you may register for and take the section(s), as needed. There is no limit to the number of times you may take a section; however, each time you register to take one or more sections, you must pay the appropriate test registration fees. Please note that you must wait at least 45 calendar days before retaking a computer-based test.
